What is Artist as Catalyst?

An immersive experience for emerging artists interested in making a positive social impact with their art. Rooted in community, the Artist as Catalyst Program embraces the maxim: “think globally, act locally.” 40 Catalysts, ages 18-26, are selected to partake in studio classes, keynote conversations, and interactive workshops on the themes of Mindfulness, Arts Entrepreneurship, Collaboration, and Relationship Building. The program benefits artists who are looking to build community around the questions: How do I make great art, make a living and make a difference?

Artist as Catalyst FAQ

All four days of programming are completely covered at no charge to the participants.

HEAR FROM OUR CATALYSTS…

Sustainability is about community. The most important tool I gained from the program was exactly that…now I have people to reach out to about my art, to create together, people I can look up to. In Miami you can be successful, and now I am connected to people that exemplify that.

“The program has helped me envision new ways to elevate what I am already doing by adding a deeper meaning.”

“This program made me realize that so many of my ideas can further help the artistic community in Miami, and they can actually be pitched to organizations and brought to fruition.”

“Hearing from successful individuals from so many organizations I’m interested in gave me the confidence to ‘shoot my shot.’”

More details on the Artist as Catalyst Program

Catalysts selected for the program take part in: 

  • Studio classes led by industry professionals from across the country
  • Interactive workshops 
  • Panel discussions with groundbreaking artistic leaders 
  • A conversation with a VIP Keynote Speaker
  • Collaborative projects, open mics, jam sessions and more

The Catalyst program welcomes artists of all disciplines, art forms, and educational backgrounds, as long as they are actively engaged in some sort of creative practice at the time of the program.

The Peace Studio is grateful for the leading support of the Green Family Foundation in Miami and Unlikely Collaborators in Los Angeles in making both of our 2024 Artist as Catalyst programs possible.
